One of the best movies, I have seen till todate. Although the ratings of movie is not that high, but I loved every moment of this movie.

Story of a person who loves "The Words" more than the woman who inspired him to write those words. Writers who had a passion to write, while one lost all in the cause, while other make fortune on the expense of some ones else work with a deep remor... read more

A great version of the question "what is the price of fame?" Well acted, but the three parallel plot lines became a little distracting and the Dennis Quaid/Olivia Wilde sub-plot seemed rather pointless in the end.

Almost a masterpiece and one of best movie from the year 2012. These kinda movies won't make into Oscar, that's really a shame. There is some controversy like the plot was similar to a German movie which was also adapted from a novel 'Lila Lila'. I have not seen that movie nor read a novel so I just loved this movie.

The story had multiple layers from different eras and it was well ... read more

"Taking a premise that could've made for an interesting complex drama, this film squanders it with an overly complicated composition, and has no sense of tension."

"14.03.2014 A story about a book and how it affected the lives of three different people. The movie reminds me of a Matryoshka (a story within a story within a story). I rate it with 7,5 points."

“Almost a masterpiece and one of best movie from the year 2012. These kinda movies won't make into Oscar, that's really a shame. There is some controversy like the plot was similar to a German movie which was also adapted from a novel 'Lila Lila'. I have not seen that movie nor read a novel so I just loved this movie.

The story had multiple layers from different eras and it was well balanced. The twists were not really complicated one, anyone can predict the scenes but all the above brilliant direction from the two débutante directors.

Performances were so good, Bradley cooper steals the show, I felt he was better than in 'Silver lining playbook'. This movie was about a writer and movie was like reading a novel itself. Most of the critics did not like it much but if you” read more

"Being an avid reader as well as loving movies made this a very enjoyable movie to watch. It really underscores the power of the written word. This movie revolves around one man taking credit for another man's words and his own self judgement knowing that what he did was morally wrong. How do you live with yourself when there is no way to fix what you've broken? I venture to guess that this has happened in different ways to many people. We might all live with some small regrets or some of us with"

"A man becomes successful after getting a book published that he didn't write. He must now deal with the consequences. This movie has a pretty great cast and a good plot. I like the way this movie was written very interesting. Very well acted Jeremy Irons and Bradley Cooper are amazing. Not all love stories can be happy. The ending makes you think. "
